As far as I remember (a long time ago...) RH9's glibc is one of the first
to support NPTL and there were some bugs. Also take care that not all RH9
provided kernels offer NPTL support (and that is required for wine).
You can eventually try to install wine from sources but you may get stuck
with old libraries that are not detected properly of have not enough
capabilities. There will be font related problems as support has evolved a
Thinking about having 6 versions of Fedora Core newer than RH9, you should
really consider an upgrade.
